Mykayla Comstock's family says marijuana helps her fight an especially aggressive form of leukemia, keeps infection at bay and lifts her weary spirit. Twice a day she swallows a potent capsule form of the drug. Some days, when she can't sleep or eat, she snacks on a gingersnap or brownie baked with marijuana-laced butter.
Mykayla is one of 2,201 cancer patients authorized by the state of Oregon to use medical marijuana.
She is 7.
[...] "It helps me eat and sleep," she said, nestled against her mother on a couch. "The chemotherapy makes you feel like you want to stay up all night long."
Marijuana, she said, "makes me feel funny, happy."
"She's like she was before," her mother said. "She's a normal kid."
